Why more UK students are attending university in The Netherlands

A number of media outlets have carried this story over the weekend - an increasing number of UK-based students are choosing to study for their degree in The Netherlands, where tuition fees are £1400 per year, and vast amounts of teaching now takes place in English. Whilst students might be slightly further from home, cheap flights and decent European rail-links, combined with messaging apps such as Facetime and Skype, staying in touch with friends and family in the UK is straightforward. Students are also hoping that by studying abroad, they might have an edge in the jobs market when they graduate.
